Nearly Free Quilts

This lovely book arrived in the mail today:



It's full of lovely suggestions, together with a scrap saver system, on quilts to make from scraps leftover from making other quilts. Or, in my case, to make scrappy from fabric in my stash.

I'm thinking it's time to recharge the battery in my camera.

Sewing Ticker

On a recent blog I visited, I saw a progress ticker. I'd like to add one to my blog to count the days I actually spend sewing in one year. I've got a temporary one at the bottom, but as you can see I've modified an Exercise Ticker. I suppose sewing can count as exercise, but I'd really rather add something more appropriate.

Can anyone point me to a site where I can find such a thing?

Thanks!

Edited to add: I managed to figure out how to create a custom ticker. But if you know of a better one, please let me know.

A New Project

DH has decided he would like the quilt on the front cover of this issue of  Quilt Magazine - so now comes the task of picking through my stash for fabric.

Pictures will follow. :-)

Scrappy Patterns

A very kind blogger, who knows that I like scrappy quilts, sent me this pattern.


Thank you, pennyquilts!

Sewing Machine Addiction

I am a sewing machine addict.

It's not my fault. Really.

And I know I said I was only going to collect toy ones now, because they take up far less room.

But, what's a girl to do when she finds something like this?


I just had to open it up to see what was inside...



The machine is cast iron, and the design is part of the machine itself, instead of painted on.


And it DID come with accessories.

I guess you've figured out by now that it followed me home. LOL

There are more pictures, but they'll keep until tomorrow.

Happy sewing!
